Stepping open air of the platitudes surrounding this iconic determine, Anne A. Cheng argues that Baker's recognized nakedness has to be understood inside greater philosophic and aesthetic debates approximately, and wish for, 'pure floor' that crystallized on the convergence of contemporary paintings, structure, equipment, and philosophy. via Cheng's research, Baker emerges as a primary artist whose paintings engages with and affects numerous modes of modernist reveal resembling movie, images, paintings, or even the trendy house.
